Offline Mode for SimCity is in Final Testing
Filed under: SIMCITY, MAXIS

SimCity developer Maxis has announced that SimCity mayors won't have that much longer to wait to build cities offline.

This update 10 will remove the online requirement for playing SimCity. The reason why this has taken so long to develop is that Maxis had to create a whole new mode for the game to operate without online functionality. When they originally built the game, they built it with multiple players in mind, so many of the game's mechanics relied upon players connecting with one another.

Anyone interested in trying out SimCity when this goes live?

I played it for a while but the small city size just restricts creativity too much. I'm hoping that the offline mode will spawn some mods which remove the city borders or at least allow good sized cities.

SC4 is still going very strong today on the back of a tremendous modding community. I only hope that the same community is allowed a good shot at realising the potential of this game, but sadly I think the damage is now done.

I will definitely try SimCity when the offline mode goes in.

Now if Diablo 3 could be offline that would be nice.
